Archie Bronson Outfit - I Was A Dead Duck

Yeah, we heard they'd split up as well. In fact they've lost bassist Dorian Hobday and promoted to fulltime status longtime live electronic noisemaker Capitol K (Kristian Robinson to some) and this was recorded in a day and mixed and mastered the same week for a limited edition 7" on producer to the stars Dan Carey's Speedy Wunderground label out May 6th. It's slightly more linear than the bulk of Cuckoo and a slight step sideways too, a motorik beat and bolshy Peter Hook-indebted electronic bassline backing Sam Windett's shouting into a tunnel. Then it withdraws into itself for a bit and re-emerges in Neu!/Stereolab lineage freakout mode. No further details are public yet, bar a slot at Green Man, but it bodes very well for whatever comes next.
